We WORK: Understanding the Inner Ecosystem for Remote Workers

Sunlight and Plants to oxidize the room.
When you first take on that new Job, you are ecstatic! You're charged and seem to have an enormous amount of Mental, Emotional, Physical and Spiritual capacity to take things on, to thrive constantly and do well. But overtime, when productivity settles in so does the stress of processing, maintaining and or managing your energy throughout the day. Self-care is Essential for completing projects and assignments, especially for remote and independent workers.




Private booths for information sensitive calls or meetings



 Self-care in fact is a must, and it lives right there in the workplace. As a Wellness Practitioner and Intrinsic Wellness Coach, I am passionate about having a healthy happy work place. 


The simple things we know but take for granted, like staying Hydrating, taking breaks, cooling down, interacting with others, getting a good stretch in, proper digesting lunch before returning to work.

WeWork has a done a fantastic job of providing ambiance and tools needed to hone in and get things done....but attention the Body.... an environment of its own, needs attention too. After sitting for hours at a desk, hunched over your laptop or tilting your head in odd positions while trying to take calls, type or taking notes, the body can get out of sorts and needs a moment of recharge, refresh or simply just pause. Get the blood flowing, the stimulate mental through the physical with some gentle top of the day exercises that won't bother your neighbor.

The BeeBodi Marketplace provided a demonstration to the various companies at DC's WeWork site in Navy Yard on the importance of Body Awareness, Energy Management and the useful exercises from the GYROKINESIS® technique. 


Participants were able to pick from one of the Poll Questionnaire Cards to first bring awareness to their work engagement skills in order to draw conclusions and make better decisions for a healthier work regimen. 


Here's an example:

One of the remote workers who picked a card was able to pinpoint his choices on sugar intake throughout the day were increasingly high, thus causing him to crave more sugar to boost his energy. He'd expressed interested in learning more about Nutritional Guidance. This is a great first step:

It was a great day getting to know the people of WeWork. It's it an place where one has far more freedom to express the body and it's needs throughout the work day. 




Cushion Seating where one can change 
their position, meditate or take a stretch. 
Most importantly the key is actually take part in....become a doer of those things that will help, enhance and sustain that thriving energy that it takes to succeed at work.

Special Events, Talks and WeWork Labs.

Yes, Work, Get Your LIFE. Street/Dance Workshop Jacob's Pillow 2020 NYC

My Life at the Pillow..." ~by JR Glover Today was a Pillow Day. As an Alumni, I traveled North to help facilitate and support the Recruitment Tour amidst other beautiful dancing bodies. It's amazing to see how we have all grown through the years as Dancers, Creatives, Choreographers, Directors and lifelong students. Even more, it's inspiring to know that we are all keeping at it--pursuing Excellence and honing our craft day by day. What was meant to be a standby experience turned out to be a Full Dance Day for me. I give thanks to my peers who encouraged me to dance. It was a risk--knowing that I had not danced or taken a technique class proper in several months. However, due to the nature of GYROKINESIS as an instructor, I never lost body awareness, posture, alignment etc. So it was just a matter of tipping over the edge again to see where my body goes....and catching it again. It was a necessary challenge in fact, with the chronic pain of Trigeminal Neuralgia and C

No Yoga for me this Morning. Instead, I was eagerly anticipating L'Antoinette Stiles company class and workshop featuring her specialized technique: L'anTech being held at the National Performing Arts Building as part of the University of Trinidad & Tabago. I first encountered this woman as gazed at a piece of fruit to eat one early morning in Dayton, Ohio at the International Association of Blacks in Dance Association Annual Conference in Festival 2019. Typical gypsy scenario, coming from long travels in need of nourishment after thing is all said and done. She bit into an apple that rested on a table beside me, she picked it up--looked at me it that was the beginning of my admiration for a such a this deeply rich cultured person.

The Streets of the Caribbean, A Traveling Black Woman

“Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” -  Ibn Battuta . Trinidad & Tobago really out did themselves with the Design and Set-up of Carifesta XIVp particularly at the Grand Stand in Queens Park. Whether you were entering through the side gates as personnel and staff or to meander through the welcome gate...there was a scenic route and display of color and culture all around. When you first enter in, you are greeted by mock flight attendants in side of the cabin of a plane, upon exiting the archway is there for picture taking with avenue signs name after the representing countries and islands. There is a vintage cobblestone Victorian town accompanied by colorful Cuban style houses with movie scene revolving lights--really making for the fun and magic of this reunion. There was much to see, do, taste and experience. The marketplace carried dishes from Haiti, Guyana, Guadelope and more, taking locals on a sensory trip off shores and pulling
